I agree If he had been smarter he'd have pulled a gun on her not a knife. I guess he has learned his lesson, next time he'll take a gun, assuming Obummer doesn't enact some legislation to prevent him.

Hogwash. There are no laws that can prevent criminals from being armed with firearms. Even nations with confiscatory gun laws still have a few crimes committed with firearms.

When defenders have firearms, criminals face a risk of injury or death. Maybe big risk, maybe small risk, but a greater risk than they face if the victims does not have a firearm. Sooner or later, the criminal will get shot, even if he is armed. Criminals know this, so they fear facing armed victims, no matter what they are armed with.

When CNN's Piers Morgan goes on his anti-Second Amendment rants, he never acknowledges the drop in the overall U.S. violent crime rate. In the past ten years, more people than ever have received concealed carry permits and are arming themselves in their homes and on their property. As a result, rape, murder and assault are down. Responsible armed citizens stop violent crimes from happening everyday. The latest news comes from Wisconsin where an armed grandmother stopped the robbery of a grocery story and saved herself from a knife slashing in the process.

Robberies happen far too often,...
